MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell had to go there when discussing the heinous attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's 82-year-old husband. The segment started off okay, but then it suddenly went South when Mitchell tried to both sides the discussion. The attack on Pelosi's husband needs to be denounced across the board, but that's not what we're seeing. We're at such a dark place in this country when the former President's son weighed in to mock the violent attack on a Democratic leader's husband.
Mitchell must have forgotten that attacks on Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger aren't coming from the Democratic side of the aisle.
"As I said yesterday -- let me repeat -- that Republicans have been targeted. Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Alito mentioned this," she said. "There have been death threats. Adam Kinzinger. Liz Cheney, memorably, could barely campaign in public. Susan Collins, talking about protection at one's home. it's both sides. But a Rand Corporation study from 2020 shows the majority of domestic terrorism threats, two-thirds, are coming from the far right versus 1/5th from the far left."
That woman makes me want to rip my hair from my skull. The attacks on Cheney and Kinzinger are coming from Republicans. Someone left Susan Collins a message in chalk outside of her home. Chalk. Not a hammer, but chalk. She called the police over the chalked message. So, the people she just mentioned are bullshit examples.
She makes millions of dollars each year to open her mouth and let ridiculous words spill out of it. All she had to do was denounce it, but instead, a chalked-up sidewalk somehow seemed relevant to the discussion to her. What a ridiculous person. And she has a powerful microphone but doesn't use it wisely.
